Bob Dylan Content in Broadside magazine (new original post, February 2011)

Spent all day today browsing through the back issues of Broadside magazine -- what a treasure trove for anyone interested in the early Bob Dylan and his contemporaries like Peter LaFarge, Phil Ochs, Tom Paxton, Eric Andersen, Len Chandler, or Buffy Sainte-Marie....

I'm sure that it will keep me busy for weeks, not the least because the pdf files created from faded mimeo-
graphed or typewritten copies of the magazine, especially those of the earliest issues, are "kinda hard to to read" at times -- the website claims that "All issues from # 1-186 are now available free on this site," which is not quite true (I noticed issues #68 and #69 missing).

A good way to start is with the Index pages:

"There are several indexes to Nos. 1-145 that were created in the 1980s and there are two indexes to 146-186 that were created especially for this website."
